    Morning all! First payment of £200 taken out of my account to my ISA today!
    Savings so far - £230/£6000 :j :j
    Hope everyone is doing well and had a nice Christmas! :)

    Well done, fantastic start.

    I am still looking for a job so will take me a while to get started.

  • Can I join please?

    I would like to save £1500 by the end of the year - current savings are a meagre £19.55, but its something! I am paid weekly but my job is only guaranteed until March, so I'm going to aim for £25 per week (No commuting costs as I live round the corner and can take own food) and anything left on a Thursday will be put in as well.
  • Count me in too please. I'm aiming to save £2000 by December 31st 2014 using various savings accounts.

  • Please add me to this. Okay so I did well this year reducing debt. Last credit card payment due soon so this will free up some much needed cash. Also got a wage rise which although modest is welcomed. I did the sealed pot challenge for Christmas and managed to have some left from Christmas fund for 2014.

    So all in all my aim is in line with this thread. Aim is to put money into various funds and reduce mortgage by making overpayments. Savings are kid uni fund; main savings account; Christmas savings account will continue.

    Today I managed to put my wage rise and some savings from jar in house into Christmas fund; money into kid's uni fund; overpay mortgage by £25; put savings into main fund. Any O/T I get will also be split amongst these.

    Feeling more in control of finances that any time in my working life (almost 25 years). This website is great and the forum rocks.
